Dubai – Workers at Berlin’s Tegel and Schoenefeld airports are striking from 4 a.m. local time (0300 GMT) on Monday until Tuesday at about 5 a.m. local time (0400 GMT), German Union Verdi said.

The union wants an increase in pay for ground staff to 12 euros ($12.80) an hour from about 11 euros as part of a one-year collective agreement. Management first offered about 10 cents more an hour over four years and then improved that offer to an 8 percent increase over three years.

As well as Lufthansa, carriers including Air Berlin, easyJet and Ryanair serve the two airports.
